I told you I would be back soon LOL!! When I was commenting I saw some gorgeous Stockings on Caroline's Blog. Well I thought they were fab. You open up the top and there is space to put gift voucher or money. The template is free from Waltzing Mouse Stamps.
The pink paper and matching Tag was freebie with Cardmaking and Papercraft and is still available to download. The red paper is from Pink Petticoat. The gorgeous snowflake with the gem is from Sew Sweet. After seeing those gorgeous Felt Kits on Vicky's Website, I thought I would take a look. They have some wonderful things.... thanks Vicky for sharing the link!! The delivery was so quick and they added in some of the snowflakes as a little extra!! I bought the Gingerbread Men Kit.
It was a very quick make, so it's not perfect inside.... don't look too closely!! The gorgeous sentiments and holly inside the top of the Stocking are from a Forever Friends set that was part of the Candy that I won from Sarah. What a fab parcel of goodies she sent!! Thank You Sarah! it was like an early Christmas Present!
I'm quite pleased with how this turned out considering how quickly I made it. I love the colours on it. I will tie the ribbon much neater when I have put the money inside!!!! ;-)
Hope you like it...

Off to get a few hours sleep now! I keep falling asleep after tea and then I'm wide awake half the night!!
I think it's the dark evenings. It was pitch black outside at 4.15pm. But then tomorrow is the shortest day I think? so from then on it will be getting lighter everyday!! :-)
